I'm not an expert on the Quran, and while I do have one, of the late Rashid Khalifa who founded the ONLY Islamic branch I like, the Quran Only
branch, that rejects hadith, and sharia, etc.
But back to the OP, Islam's history is pretty much like Mormonism. But the way the Quran was put together, if Muhammed went in the cave, and the
angel Gabriel would tell him stuff, and then he'd come out of the cave and repeat it, and someone wrote it down. This went on for over 20 years, and

The Bible though, is a whole mess of various books, the Torah, OT, and then the later NT books, of various authors written in various times. These
were compiled and later made into what we call the Bible, I think over 100 years after Jesus died, at the Council of Nicea. The idea as I gather it,
was to make an authoritive version, and close down the altenative branches, as they rejected many books to be included in the Bible.
